Can't get it out of my head!

As you may or may not know, I'm the stage manager for a local theatre production of "The Great American Trailer Park Musical."  For the last two shows I've stage managed, the director didn't need me to come in until just before the tech rehearsals started.  With this show, I've been to almost all of the rehearsals, with the exceptions of the ones where he's just teaching the music.  It's been... different.  But not bad.

This means that I've heard the songs almost as much as the cast.  Unfortunately, this means that they're stuck in my head.  However, my brain is apparently bored with the actual arrangement of songs, and has decided to mix up the lyrics from several numbers and play them over and over and over.  I've had to blast Britney Spears in the car, just to get the music out of my head for a few minutes at a time.

Tonight, I'll leave you with a few clips from my brain (and "The Great American Trailer Park Musical").

Just feel that late summer fire/burning up the sky
It makes time stand still/and your brain start to fry

'Cause it's the Great American TV Show
We're in your living room
Pour some java/stir in some sweet 'n' low

You shouldn'ta couldn'ta wouldn'ta oughta done it
You shouldn'ta couldn'ta wouldn'ta oughta seen that tramp no
You shouldn'ta couldn'ta wouldn'ta oughta done it
In this period of your life she's a major cramp!

Hmmm... that seems to have quieted the songs, at least for the moment... yay!

Come and knock on our door...
(Come and knock on our door)
We've been waiting for you...
(We've been waiting for you)
Where the kisses are - hers and hers and his,
Three's company too...

This usually clears up head-stuck-songs pretty well.

(You're not too young to remember Three's Company, are you?)
